2013 brought many changes to the Lindenwold Police Department. In May 2013, Lt. Michael McCarthy was promoted to the rank of Captain and is currently serving as the department’s Executive Officer in charge of police operations. In the month of July we saw the promotion of three Sergeants to the rank of Lieutenant. Sergeants Douglas Reynolds, Michael Cavallaro and Roseann Torres were all promoted on July 10, 2013.
In addition to the promotions, a new officer was hired on September 4, 2013. Ptlm. Kyle Keating came to the Lindenwold Police Department after serving with the Gibbsboro Police Department. A recruit officer, Steven Blantz was hired early this year and is currently attending the Camden County Police Academy. Currently our department stands strong at 38 officers.
The Lindenwold Police Department has dedicated itself to serving the community. We have adopted a philosophy to be more in touch with the community we serve. In keeping with that philosophy and in an effort to stay current with technology, we have launched a Twitter account (@LindenwoldPD) and a YouTube channel (youtube.com/lindenwoldpolice) in addition to our Facebook page so we can keep our community up to date on events occurring in town as well as trends in criminal activity. I am hopeful that in the near future, I will be able to have a least one officer dedicated to community outreach efforts on a full time basis.
